[ethernetbunny]
1. Can you tell the difference?
2. Do you usually prefer one style or the other? You always prefer splurge or you always pick steal? Based on price or looks? Be honest!
3. If you had the money would you always splurge?

Unrelated: Just got a One-Touch Maxtor external hard drive -- Having trouble setting it up so it always backs up certain folders. We click on the setup button but nothing happens. We've already checked the website. Thanks.

What sorts of recent books would you recommend for an 11-year-old tomboy? My little sister loves fantasy and such, but she's already read all the ones I liked at her age. She hates girly things and isn't at the age where she's interested in books about boys and relationships.

This next question has a bit of nebulous backstory, which will be cut to spare f-lists.Collapse ) Should I get him a gift? I wouldn't want to get something from him and have nothing ready in return, but I also wouldn't want to make him feel guilty if he doesn't actually buy me a gift.

I cant seem to find them again and i have NO idea how it happened. Any ideas on how to get them again? Anyone else had this happen?

[mood |discontentdesperate]

I have a 97 jetta. I LOVE my car. Except that if it's 40 or below outside I pretty much can't drive safely, due to the inside windows fogging up and killing my field of vision. I've tried turning on the A/C, even though it freezes me; I've tried turning on the heater both low and high settings; I've tried leaving the vents open so outside air comes in; I've tried not turning the A/C or heater on at all.

Nothing works (except leaving my two front-seat windows open, which, when it gets down below freezing outside, is just not an option). It's so bad I have to drive with a squeegee in one hand and constantly wipe the windows, which is not safe for driving but I've got to get to work somehow!

Do/did you have this problem? Can you offer any advice for stopping it?

Money and the way your family brought you up [Nov. 27th, 2005|10:59 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[punk_is_so_dead]
How did your family bring you up in regards to money and the way you spend, save and earn it?
(For example, did your parents buy you everything and give you spending money and not encourage you to work? Did they make you get a job once you were of legal working age? Something in between?)

If you are from a family where you had to work and save for anything that you wanted, how do you feel about people who have everything handed to them? Say for example you've been working since you were 15 and have had to pay for your own clothes, prescriptions, doctor appointments - pretty much everything except food - and your college education. Let's say you're in college right now and working full-time to help pay it off. How would you feel about someone who is in college full-time and doesn't have to work because his or her parents give him or her money?

What about the opposite situation. If you are from a family whose parents gave them everything and you never had to work for anything or worry about money, what do you think about people who have to save and have to work harder? Or people who buy things that aren't expensive and aren't always the nicest things? Or people who are always worried or stressed about money?

So, can abybody give me a nice website where I can order shoes and they're not all things that add, like, 5 inches? Flats = good for moi.

transmission flush and fake plants [Nov. 27th, 2005|03:53 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[tempest_omouthy]
[mood |bitchybitchy]

When we bought our secondary car (a little over two months ago - we've only put like 60 miles on it since then), we took it to our mechanic to be inspected first. He had mentioned that the transmission would need to be flushed in the near future. Is this something we can do ourselves? I imagine it's really just draining and completely replacing the fluid. And I know when you change your own oil, you can take it places to be recycled/properly disposed of afterwards - so I would think there's something similar for transmission fluid. Bueller?

I got a fake ficus tree to fill a corner in our living room yesterday. The problem is that corner is (quite unexpectedly) housing a Christmas tree right now. And I have no where else to put it until after the holiday season (believe me, I tried everywhere). Out of frustration and lack of space, I stuck it out on my balcony. Will it be ok there? I live in northern GA so it shouldn't get iced or snowed on and if it does, it'll only be a little. Thoughts?

For some reason my printer (HP LaserJet 1300) always screws up the bottom margin of pages. It ignores it completely, no matter if I print from the browser or from MS Word, and often times the bottom-most line of the text I'm printing is partially cut off, sometimes so much that you can't read what it says. I'm sure It's not the paper I'm using because it's the largest size that can fit in there.. so...

Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Mattress Questions [Nov. 27th, 2005|06:53 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[sara_k_s]
I’m moving into my new apartment next weekend, and I’m shopping for a new bed because, well, I need a place to sleep, and the bed in my room in my parents’ house is old and worn out. I am completely clueless about mattresses, though, so I hope someone with mattress-shopping experience can answer some questions!

1. How much should I plan to spend on a mattress? I can afford to buy a good mattress that will be comfortable and last a long time, but I don’t want to spend more money than is necessary to get a good one.

2. What are the best brands of mattresses? I know that Simmons Beauty Rest is supposed to be good (that’s the kind with the individually pocketed coils). However, I thought that the main benefit to the Simmons mattresses is that the other person doesn’t get disturbed when one person moves, and since I expect to be sleeping alone for the foreseeable future, that’s not particularly important.

3.How do I tell if a mattress feels right? I went mattress shopping today and looked at Simmons Beauty Rest and Sealy Posturepedic mattresses. I lay down on at least a dozen different mattresses, and I couldn’t really say that any was significantly more comfortable than the others. It’s hard to tell in 2 minutes how a mattress would feel to sleep on all night, every night.

4. What should I do? I have to make a decision by tomorrow (Monday) afternoon in order to get it delivered on move-in day. Right now, the decision is really between a Simmons and a Sealy. The Simmons is about $200 more, but if it really is better, that’s not really much money over the course of 10-15 years. However, there’s also the decision on whether I’m ready to make a decision now, or whether I should do more shopping and thinking about it before I pick one.

4. Were any of you cloth diapered as a baby? Do you think that would make you more inclined to cloth diaper if you had kids?

5. Do any of you naturally have an outie belly button? Are you self-conscious about it? If you don't, do you know anybody who does?

5b. What the heck makes an outie belly button anyway?

6. I work in the advertising department at a newspaper that gives FREE weekly issues, and is also downloadable online.

Last year I was lucky enough to find me a long sleeeve fishnet shirt that fit me.

The only problem is I own just one. This leads me to my question.

Does anyone know or have any suggestions for where I could look for a fishnet shirt in plus sizes? I'm not picky about the styles or colours, I just really would appericiate any suggestions at all.

1. So I watched Rent this weekend and loved it absolutely. I have never seen the play and am curious to find out what scenes and songs were left out of the movie. So, any helpful Rentheads here?

2. What did you think of Rosario Dawson's singing (a. if you've never seen/heard the original Mimi, b. if you've only seen/heard the movie)? How'd she hold up next to the Rent vets? b - I thought she was fabulous. Surprisingly fabulous. I had only heard her sing in The Pussycats movie and... well, it's not like she had anything to work with. Besides, she was a backup singer.

3. Have you ever been alone at Christmas? What were the circumstances? I think I may be alone this Christmas. I'm looking for empathy.

4. What does "mangia" mean? I know it's Italian. Is it slang? What for?

5. What's the biggest age range ever between you and someone you've slept with?

6. Are you a hockey fan? Ever been to one of your team's home games? What happens when your team scores a goal on their home turf? Here at the Calgary Flames' Saddledome these bursts of fire go off and light up the entire arena. You can feel the heat from wherever you are too. It's amazing.

7. Do you have brothers or sisters? What's your relationship with them right now? Non-existent? Thicker than thieves?

ETA: #4. Okay, the context I heard it in was from the movie Kissing Jessica Stein. A woman is writing a personal ad seeking women. Her friend is helping her with it and suggests that she puts "looking for friendship or more". Her friend says that this way she'll have access to all the bicurious girls as well but she says she doesn't want virgins. Then he says something about virgins and how they're "mangia". So, something sexual obviously. I'm just not understanding exactly what he means and it's bothering me.

Laptop query - long I know.... [Nov. 27th, 2005|09:16 pm]

My laptop, after almost two years of wonderful service, is playing up. I only use it for university work and usually work from a USB drive. However, the laptop has been freezing up when in use and keeps showing "Operating System" not found when I start it up. Sometimes it takes two or three attempts to get it started.

The final straw came when I was working a final draft of an essay and the laptop froze. I found it usually began working after a few minutes. When I tried to save it, it wouldn't let me save the file. So I closed the document and the entire file vanished from my laptop. I'm not stupid and I know I didn't accidentally hit delete or anything like that. Since then I've been scared to use it in case I loose anymore work.

Another thing is that it has been getting very hot when in use and has been making a weird clunking/grinding sound. Also, it seemed to work fine when I was using it on battery power but started playing up again when I plugged it into the mains (due to the battery running low).

So, does anyone have a clue what could be wrong with it? Is it a problem with the charger or does it lie with the actual laptop?

Any help/advice is much appreciated!

Do you have any tips for someone who is thinking of selling stuff on ebay?

Do you ever have the problem of having miscellaneous bleach spots/streaks show up on your clothing? If so do you have any idea what they could be from? I dont use bleach and I cant think of any products that I have that could make them.

I've noticed a trend around a few different issues, both here in TQC and in other LJ comms...so I thought I'd ask:

How many of you hate one or both of your parents?

Why?

Your age? (Or range of years)

How long would it take YOU to pay off a $2000 debt?

What is a reasonable amount of time to aim for if I only work part-time?
